In The End
everyone did their best
everyone tried to hang on
and make sense of the senseless

In The End
everyone played
reasonably fair
and apologized
when they knew they had done wrong

In The End
the things you did to me
were perhaps less vicious
than the things I did to you

But this is still The End.
And there is little left for me to do
but tell you to go fuck yourself
one last time.
